Was ever a time riper to have to pay the piper? And why do we tolerate these vipers?……

…from When the Levees Break by Led Zeppelin:
If it keeps on raining levee's going to break
If it keeps on raining levee's going to break
When the levee breaks have no place to stay

Mean old levee taught me to weep and moan
Mean old levee taught me to weep and moan
Got what it takes to make a Mountain Man leave his home

Oh, well; oh, well; oh, well.

Don't it make you feel bad?
When you're trying to find your way home you don't know which way to go?
When you're going down south and there's no work to do
And you're going on to Chicago

Crying won't help you, praying won't do you no good
Crying won't help you, praying won't do you no good
When the levee breaks, mama, you got to go

All last night sat on the levee and moaned
All last night sat on the levee and moaned
Thinking about my baby and my happy home
If ever there was a time in America when the country's infrastructure, as a whole, has been so long neglected, ignored while the rain pours, and the levees really ARE starting to break, all because of a political party and its leader embroiling America in a fruitless, useless war that is acting as a black hole, sucking the life out of our beloved country and making this the time, now, to pay the piper, this is that time.

I know that bush alone is not to blame for the lack of infrastructure repair, but were it not for his bankrupting the country trying to steal the Iraqi oil we could have legitimately purchased for far less treasure and many fewer lives then perhaps our next president, Barack Obama, could begin the awesome, almost insurmountable task, of rebuilding the levees, the bridges, the highways and byways of America, and actually make real progress towards breaking the country's addiction to oil that has prevented all these things from already having been done. In the meantime our country continues to keep
Going down - going down, now
Going down - going down, now
Going down
Going down
Going down
Going down

Going down - going down, now
Going down - going down, now
Going down - going down, now
Going down
Going dow-, dow-, dow-, dow-, down, now
I weep for my country and rail against a political party composed of evil men using evil constructs of their evil and greedy little minds to enrich themselves while our country is dying.
Generals gathered in their masses
Just like witches at black masses
Evil minds that plot destruction
Sorcerers of death's construction
In the fields the bodies burning
As the war machine keeps turning
Death and hatred to mankind
Poisoning their brainwashed minds
Oh lord yeah!

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to the poor

Time will tell on their power minds
Making war just for fun
Treating people just like pawns in chess
Wait 'til their judgement day comes
Yeah!

Now in darkness world stops turning
Ashes where the bodies burning
No more war pigs have the power
Hand of God has struck the hour
Day of judgement, God is calling
On their knees the war pig's crawling
Begging mercy for their sins
Satan laughing spreads his wings
Oh lord yeah!
From, of course, Black Sabbath's War Pigs.

If there is a god may he damn them all to hell.

Then there's the question we're left with, from the original version of the song Led Zeppelin adapted (from Kansas Joe and Memphis Minnie):

"Now look here mama what am I to do
Now look here mama what am I to do
I ain't got nobody to tell my troubles to"

We can all commiserate together, get out and vote, and hope the country as a whole is up to the job of repairing the near fatal damage bushco has done to our precious country.

Thank you for your thoughtful comment.
